Originally called Davenport Golf Club, Stockport Golf Club's history dates back to 1905 when a 9-hole course at Woodsmoor was laid out for the members.

In 1908, a more suitable site at Torkington was identified, and the following year a new course opened for play, designed by 1902 Open Champion and Huddersfield professional, Sandy Herd.

The golf course was used for cadet training and agriculture during the First World War, but Harry Colt was called in after hostilities ceased to restore and improve the original layout.

The course today measures less than 6,400 yards from the back tees, but it represents a fine golfing test just as Harry Colt may have envisioned more than a century ago. Testament to its challenge, Stockport Golf Club has been used regularly by the R&A for Open Championship Regional Qualifying.
